We are a group of plein air painters with the goal of promoting plein air painting in British Columbia.

In 2010, Michael King purchased the domain name ‘pleinairbc.com’ and started a website with the goal of bringing all the plein air painters in BC together. The site is also to serve as a repository for plein air painters around to world to learn about beautiful BC and what it has to offer the outdoor painter.

In 2012 a call for volunteers was sent out and the reply has been positive. Volunteers have joined the team to help with the task at hand. If you are interested in donating your time to write various articles for the site, please contact us.

We hope you find the information on this site interesting, entertaining but most of all informative.
